I have a web address connected to Windows hosting

(the address is www.estrelaenergia.com)

I'm trying to install Joomla to that address prior to writing a simple site.

I've gone into the back end of the domain hosting and created a database and an ftp account.
used filezilla to connect, this gave me 3 folders on the webserver (db, logs, wwwroot)

I then unzipped Joomla 2.5.8 onto my local PC and copied the entire unzipped folder into the wwwroot folder on the webserver.

I then typed www.estrelaenergia.com into my address bar but I get nothing, just a 404 error.

What am I getting wrong please?

What web server you are running? Apache or IIS? Check virtual host settings

I'm not sure to be honest.
I contacted the people that the domain is hosted with and told them what I wanted to do, they just said to install a MYSQL5 database within the hosting package in HELM so that's what I did.
Another section within helm says PHP version 5 if that helps?

Otherwise, how do I find out whether I'm running Apache or IIS?

If it is  apache check virtual host settings in httpd.conf file and also the error may be from .htaccess file with joomla root folder...

If it is IIS, you need to go to  IIS Manager (inetmgr) and do the configuration to point to the web folder with proper settings..

Please contact your Hosting provider, they should be able to solve this without any issue and in a quick time
